This is for any guitar or bass players. Im looking for a new amp and working on a budget of under $300. Something loud, but with good tone. I will be playing a Epiphone SG and an Ibanez bass through it in two bands. One plays punk and the other plays thrash and hardcore metal. Im considering a Rouge GS-100R. Anybody know if these are any good?

i would recommend seeing what you can get used. i know guitar center has used amps, and more local mom-and-pop type places would have even more.

however, i do think you're going to run into trouble with your budget. i just put together what i consider a fairly budget 350-watt hartke/peavey bass rig for a little over 600 bucks, and it was a steal used. my ex-guitarist just paid a similar price for a used marshall/crate half stack from i believe Musician's Friend, so you might want to try them also.. www.musiciansfriend.com

good luck.. like i said, your budget is way low unless you're just playing in your house and don't need a stage-worthy rig.

Im kind of poor, but my budget might go up when I get my tax return. Thats just how it is when your 15 and only work 1 1/2 everyday after school. Im also considering buying a friends 4x12 Marshall cab, but I'll need a head. Any reccomendations?

i personally think the biggest problem you're going to run into is trying to find a rig that suits both bass and guitar, which seems to be what you're doing. bass played through a guitar amp is going to sound like absolute ASS, so i'd focus on getting a bass head and bass cabinet rather than a guitar amp, which is not going to suit your bass at ALL. and the rely on a pedal to get distortion, rather than using the amp itself.

Yeah, I only have an MP3 of "Lapdance" off the original. But from the sounds of that, and the new "Rock Star", both versions woulda been album of the year candidates, whenever they came out.
